Video PG in Scenarist BD

I am using Scenarist BD v5.3 w/ CS3.
I am authoring a music led HDMV, the Main Program has a black video, then a Pop-up menu on the IG stream. The client would like to have a 'plate' appear for 8 seconds at every chapter point to say the song title which is just a black BG with text. I think the way to do this is either to put the plates on the PG stream or re-encode the black BG vid including the plates. I would like to use the PG stream so I created the plates as Still Images in CS3, got them in BD and all is good, except the client wants the song titles to fade IN and Out. It looks like I can't use the Scenarist I/O effects bcz they don't exist in the PG stream.
Reading the Manual, it does state that you can import a Still Image or a Video into the PG stream. I tried to bring in a .m2v video made in After Effects and make a PG, but that is not working.
Can someone explain how to get a 8 second video into Scenarist as a PG stream or how to format a video to become a PG?
Thank you!

You can do PG fadeIO in BDN file

PHP Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<BDN Version="1.0">
    <Description>
        <Name Title="Fade" CreatedBy="Company" CreatedOn="2014-Jun-27 08:38:58 (GMT+01:00)" />
        <Language Code="deu" />
        <Format VideoFormat="1080p" FrameRate="24" DropFrame="False" />
        <Events Type="Graphic" FirstEventInTC="00:00:05:01" LastEventOutTC="00:00:33:01" NumberofEvents="2" />
    </Description>
    <Events>
        <Event InTC="00:00:05:01" OutTC="00:00:13:01">
            <Graphic>Table_10001.png</Graphic>
             <InlineEffect Type="Fade" Duration="00:00:00:12" Anchor="Start">
        <Fade FadeType="FadeIn" />
       </InlineEffect>
       <InlineEffect Type="Fade" Duration="00:00:00:12" Anchor="End">
        <Fade FadeType="FadeOut" />
       </InlineEffect>
        </Event>
        <Event InTC="00:00:25:01" OutTC="00:00:33:01">
            <Graphic>Table_10002.png</Graphic>
             <InlineEffect Type="Fade" Duration="00:00:00:12" Anchor="Start">
        <Fade FadeType="FadeIn" />
       </InlineEffect>
       <InlineEffect Type="Fade" Duration="00:00:00:12" Anchor="End">
        <Fade FadeType="FadeOut" />
       </InlineEffect>
        </Event>
    </Events>
</BDN>

no Clue...

I tried to to do some research in hopes of using your code, but I can't figure this out! I have never worked with subtitles or any external coding so I don't even know where to begin!
I thought I would copy and paste your code into "something" adjust the parameters then import in to Scenarist but I am not sure how to do that. What program would except your code? then do I need a compiler?
Sorry for my ignorance!!!

On another note: Is there no way to make a "Presentation Graphic" a video?


Thanks again!

In Scenarist HDMV only PNGs or TIFFs can be used as assets for presentation graphics.
Here are Specs for BDN.
Usually an external program like Lemony is used to create sub scripts and graphics.
IMHO its easier and more accurate to reencode bg-video including song titles.

I think you are right, I may have to re-encode the background if I can't figure out the BDN import quickly.
Thanks for your help!
